Background It is known that thyroid hormones have effects on bone development. In particular, the effect of thyroid hormones on osteopenia of prematurity (OOP) has not been examined in preterm infants. Our study aimed to examine the relationship between OOP and congenital hypothyroidism (CH) in preterm infants. Methods Very low birth weight infants (VLBW, 700 IU/L were included in the OOP group. We intended to figure out the relationship between OOP and CH in infants. Results In our study, OOP frequency was...
The LOVE MOM cohort (Longitudinal Outcomes of VLBW Infants Exposed to Mothers' Own Milk; NIH: R010009; Meier PI) enrolled 430 infants with very low birth weight (VLBW) between 2008 and 2012 to study the impact of the dose and exposure period of MOM during hospitalization in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) on potentially preventable complications of prematurity and their associated costs. In this prospective study, MOM and formula feedings were calculated daily (mL), medical diagnoses for NICU morbid...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the association between the duration of ini tial empirical antibiotic treatment and the subsequent development of late-onset sepsis, necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and death in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants.
This article identifies the prevalence and associated factors of hypophosphatemia (HP) in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants in the first week of life.
Very low birth weight (VLBW) neonates ( 5 days) increases an infant's risk for necrotizing enterocolitis, late onset sepsis, colonization or infection with resistant organisms, and death. The aim of this study is to describe clinical and laboratory factors that influence the length of initial antibiotic courses in VLBW neonates.
The critical need to emphasize preterm infant follow-up after neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) discharge assures early identification of and intervention for neurodevelopmental disability. The aims of this study were to observe the follow-up rates in high-risk follow-up clinics, and analyze factors associated with non-compliance to follow-up among very low birth weight (VLBW) infants. The data was prospectively collected for 3063 VLBW infants between January 2013 and December 2014 from 57 Korean neonatal...
Dexamethasone phosphate is widely used for intratympanic therapy in humans. We assessed the pharmacokinetics of dexamethasone entry into perilymph when administered as a dexamethasone phosphate solution or as a micronized dexamethasone suspension, with and without inclusion of poloxamer gel in the medium. After a 1-h application to guinea pigs, 10 independent samples of perilymph were collected from the lateral semicircular canal of each animal, allowing entry at the round window and stapes to be independen...
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is the most common complication of extreme prematurity. Currently, there is no specific treatment available. Preclinical studies support cell-therapy as a promising therapy for BPD in preterm infants. A successful translation to a safe and effective clinical intervention depends on multiple factors including the perspective of neonatal health care providers. A 2 hour workshop with 40 Canadian neonatologists was held to enhance the design of a phase II trial of stem cells for...
Ninety percent of infants 29-60 days old presenting to the emergency department (ED) with fever and urinary tract infection are admitted due to fear of concomitant bacteremia. Many of these infants are at low risk for bacteremia and can be safely discharged with no heightened risk of adverse events. This study sought to estimate the potential savings from outpatient management of low-risk infants.
Premature infants are frequently administered empirical antibiotic therapy at birth. Early and prolonged antibiotic exposures among infants without culture-confirmed infection have been associated with increased risk of adverse outcomes.
While very low birth weight (VLBW) infants often require multiple red blood cell transfusions, efforts to minimize transfusion-associated risks have resulted in more restrictive neonatal transfusion practices. However, whether restrictive transfusion strategies limit transfusions without increasing morbidity and mortality in this population remains unclear. Recent epidemiologic studies suggest that severe anemia may be an important risk factor for the development of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). However,...
We investigated gesture production in infants at high and low risk for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and caregiver responsiveness between 12 and 24 months of age and assessed the extent to which early gesture predicts later language and ASD outcomes. Participants included 55 high-risk infants, 21 of whom later met criteria for ASD, 34 low-risk infants, and their caregivers. Results indicated that (a) infants with ASD outcomes used fewer gestures and a lower proportion of developmentally advanced gesture-s...
To assess the effect of range-of-motion exercise program on bone mineralization and somatic growth of very low birth weight (VLBW) infants.
To verify the prevalence of systemic arterial hypertension (SAH) and to identify possible early predictors of SAH at ages 2 and 4 years in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants.
Human breast milk (HBM) is considered inadequate in meeting protein requirements, especially for very low birth weight (VLBW) infants, which could affect body composition.
Surviving preterm born children, postnatally exposed to high doses of dexamethasone, show an increased risk of neurodevelopmental impairments. Regarding treatment with low doses of dexamethasone, no data exist on outcomes at school age.
Standardized Nutrition Protocol for Very Low-Birth-Weight Infants Resulted in Less Use of Parenteral Nutrition and Associated Complications, Better Growth, and Lower Rates of Necrotizing Enterocolitis.
We assessed the impact of a standardized nutrition initiative for very low-birth-weight (VLBW) infants on their nutrition and clinical outcomes.
Very preterm infants are at risk of cognitive impairment, but current capacity to predict at-risk infants is sub-optimal. Electroencephalography (EEG) has been used to assess brain function in development. This review investigates the relationship between EEG and cognitive outcomes in very preterm infants.
Time to Full Enteral Feeding for Very Low-Birth-Weight Infants Varies Markedly Among Hospitals Worldwide But May Not Be Associated With Incidence of Necrotizing Enterocolitis: The NEOMUNE-NeoNutriNet Cohort Study.
Transition to enteral feeding is difficult for very low-birth-weight (VLBW; ≤1500 g) infants, and optimal nutrition is important for clinical outcomes.
Despite the potential benefits of thromboelastography (TEG) for bedside hemostatic assessment in critical care settings, its accuracy remains to be determined, especially in critically ill neonates. We determined the intra-assay reproducibility of TEG parameters: Reaction time (R), clot kinetics (K) and Maximum Amplitude (MA) in a cohort of very low birth weight (VLBW) infants.
This study evaluates the effectiveness of a single-dose dexamethasone implant (DI) as an auxiliary therapy to continued intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) treatment in patients with persistent diabetic macular edema (DME).
Successful inhibition of thymidylate synthase (TS) by pemetrexed, a TS inhibitor, results in a reproducible transient burst or "flare" in thymidine salvage pathway activity at 2 hrs. of therapy which can be measurable with FLT-PET ([18F]fluorothymidine-positron emission tomography) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Routine administration of dexamethasone with pemetrexed-based therapy could potentially confound this imaging approach since dexamethasone is known to inhibit expression of thymidine kinase ...
Innate immune responses of airway epithelium are important defences against respiratory pathogens and allergens. Newborn infants are at greater risk of severe respiratory infections compared to older infants, while premature infants are at greater risk than full term infants. However, very little is known regarding human neonatal airway epithelium immune responses and whether age-related morphological and/or innate immune changes contribute to the development of airway disease.
Infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) are at increased risk of respiratory morbidity from recurrent respiratory tract infections including those from respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Data from prospective studies on RSV prophylaxis in CDH infants are limited. The objective was to determine the risk of respiratory illness- and RSV-related hospitalizations (RIH and RSVH, respectively) among infants prophylaxed for CDH, standard indications (SI), and those without increased risk (NR).
It is well established that nutrition during the first 1,000 days of life can have a long-term effect on growth, metabolic outcome, and long-term health. We review the long-term anthropometric follow-ups of children with risk of later morbidity: (a) very-low-birth-weight (VLBW) infants who have birth weights
